A report prepared by INETI to the IEA-OES under ANNEX I - Review, Exchange and Dissemination of Information on Ocean Energy Systems (IEA-OES Document No: T0103 )


This catalogue is being developed within the framework of the Annex I – Review, Exchange and Dissemination of Information on Ocean Energy Systems of the Implementing Agreement on Ocean Energy Systems (IEA-OES) of the International Energy Agency. 

This document aims at providing an overview of the available wave data appropriate for assessing and characterizing the wave energy resource in the IEA-OES member-countries, observers and elsewhere. This was collected through a questionnaire and was complemented by a web search. In addition to collating and comparing such information in a single report, it will serve to inform discussion on whether an Annex on resource assessment should be started within this Implementing Agreement. 

The OES is organised under the auspices of the International Energy Agency (IEA) but is functionally and legally autonomous. Views, findings and publications of the OES do not necessarily represent the views or policies of the IEA Secretariat or its individual member countries.
